Attitude was first class says skipper

Martin Corry knows what it is like to be on the receiving end at Worcester, which is why he was so satisfied to be on the winning side at Sixways on Saturday in his first match of the Guinness Premiership season.

“We are not particularly pleased with the performance, but we are very pleased with the attitude of the players and with the result,” said Corry who returned to captain a team which notched up a third successive win since the start of the season.

“It is always a very difficult game there, we slipped up there last year and Worcester are an even better side this time around,” Corry said.

Tigers, who lost 19-23 at Sixways last season, led three times before gaining a 19-17 verdict in an entertaining encounter in front of a record Sixways crowd of 10,863 boosted by the opening of a new stand.

“The game could have gone either way, but we stuck at it,” Corry added.

“We played our rugby in fits and starts but overall you have to look at it and say we have come away with the win.

“We know there is a lot of work to do but we have to be satisfied with the result. The post-mortem will come when we get back into training on Monday.”
